Red River Valley COVID-19 Task Force
Isolation & Quarantine Support Subgroup
The Isolation & Quarantine subgroup is focused on providing support and resources to individuals who have been instructed to self-isolate after receiving a positive test result for COVID-19.
Factors including language barriers, limited financial means, and lack of access to permanent housing can interfere with the ability of some individuals to effectively self-isolate after testing positive for COVID-19. The subgroup works with multiple community partners to address these challenges and provide support to impacted individuals.
- Developed partnership with the North Dakota Department of Human Services to coordinate housing options for individuals who need to isolate or quarantine and have limited means to permanent housing.
- Creation and distribution of care kits to encourage and support safe and proper hygiene practices. Care kits included masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and educational materials.
- Distribution of cloth face coverings to agencies supporting individuals with limited means to access this resource on their own.
- Connecting individuals to local resources for services including food and medication delivery, rent assistance, childcare services and more.
